Apple to charge $107 for iPad battery replacement

(AP) -- Apple says it will replace iPads with dying batteries for about $100.

Apple Inc.'s iPhone and iPad both have sealed-in batteries that owners can't replace themselves. As it does with the iPhone, Apple says it will give people whose iPads have a "diminished ability to hold an electrical charge" an entire new unit. The service will cost $99 plus $6.95 in shipping charges.

The information, posted on Apple's support Web site, was reported earlier by the AppleInsider blog.

Apple's first iPads, which can connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi but not cellular networks, go on sale April 3. The least expensive model will cost $499.
